Export from CSM

We use CSM to manage about a hundred virtual firewall on FWSM on 6500. I look for a way to extract or export rules from CSM into excel, for analysis purpose. Cisco have no solution "in actual release".

Is there a tier party product or else that could help ?

Re: Export from CSM

Maybe there is confusion. These two links refere to ACE modules that replaced CSM modules (Content Switching Module). And what I'm looking for is CSM software (Cisco Security Manager).

Cisco have not been very helpfull, using exactly the same acronym for two products...

Thanks,

Re: Export from CSM

Hi,

You should be able to select all of the rules in the table, ctrl-c and then paste into an excel spreadsheet.

Re: Export from CSM

Hi,

By default, CSM use a proprietary Database. Cisco also offer to replace with a relational database but it does not give any information about the structure neither any API to exploit. If we dont want to get into a real mess, I think the only solution is a product that alloud to export similar view, as in CSM, to a spreadsheet. Keep in mind that we can create groups and profile in CSM.

Re: Export from CSM

Hi Maurice,

I've a problem with CSM 3.0.1 and FWSM 3.1.(4).

Waht kind of FWSM did you loaded in?

The error about Discovery polycies says:

"The version in CSM database is: 2.3(1),"

Do you how to increase this version?

Thanks

Re: Export from CSM

Hi Leonardo,

We use FWSM 2.x. I'm not the one that do installations. A few month ago, we did a quick test to install FWSM 3 and had problems. We have not been further.
